    Malaria is one of the deadliest diseases mosquitos carry, killing more than 1 million people each year, mostly on the continent of Africa. Malaria is usually characterized by a case of the chills, followed by a fever and vomiting, and an ending “sweat-out-the-fever” stage.  However, it becomes more complicated if not treated or if the infected person has a compromised immune system.  In this circumstance, malaria can cause complication with the lungs, blood clotting, kidney failure, anemia, hypoglycemia, and seizures or comas.  

    The West Nile Virus has also made a resurgance in the United States lately, and claimed 30 lives in the states alone in 2008.
